    Wine Advocate Notes
    90-92+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yields are down this year at Petit Village. They had a little coulure and battled a serious attack of mildew. Later, winds from the north dehydrated some fruit. In the end, they came in at 35 hectoliters per hectare. A blend of 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Petit Village springs from the glass with bold expressions of warm plums, Black Forest cake, black raspberries and kirsch plus hints of rose petals, chocolate box and spearmint. The palate is full and generously fruited with a firm frame of rounded tannins that have just a bit of chew, finishing with soft-spoken freshness and fragrance." 4/19
    Vinous Media
    90-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Petit-Village offers striking depth and textural richness, all in a mid-weight style that is undeniably appealing. Dark red cherry, tobacco and cedar add nuance, with an added touch of savory complexity from the Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The finish is a bit tight at present. Hopefully élevage will take care of that. Half of the estate is farmed biodynamically. Yields are 23 hectoliters per hectare, which is about a third less than normal. Mildew was an issue, but according to Technical Director Diana Berrout-Garcia the drying northerly winds were an even more determining factor in reducing the crop. The blend is 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon." 4/19
    James Suckling Notes
    96-97 Points, James Suckling, "The beautiful depth of fruit is very impressive with a fantastic center palate of full fruit, yet so agile and floating on the palate. The fine-grained tannins kick in at the end. Very fresh and racy." 4/19
    Wine Spectator Notes
    92-95 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Very solid, featuring a core of plum and raspberry fruit flavors carried by iron-tinted structure, ending with a grippy edge that will need a little taming through the élevage. Well-built though." 4/19
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    92-94 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: "This dense wine is richly structured by firm black-fruit flavors. It has a solid core that is concentrated yet balanced by a fine freshness that is typical of the vintage." 4/19
    Decanter Notes
    93 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "This is a bigger vintage than some years at Petit-Village, with an excellent balance and an impressive swagger, giving notes of pencil lead and liquorice through the mid palate that give it a fairly Left Bank feel. There is clear concentration here with raspberry fruits that have an attractive floral edge and an abundance of silky and plump tannins. They are HVE3 but not organic and had a yield still lower than usual at 23hl/ha due to mildew and difficult fruit set which meant extremely careful sorting was required. 40% new oak was used. Winemaker Dania Berrouet-Garcia." 3/19
    91-93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "From the upper portion of the plateau, not far from Cheval Blanc and Conseillante, the 2018 Château Petit-Village is based on 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon that sees 40% new oak. Ruby/purple-colored with a lighter rim, it has a juicy bouquet of blackberries, cherries, spice, dried earth, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, with solid tannins and outstanding length, it's a charming Pomerol to drink on release and over the following 10-15 years." 5/19
